Well that didn’t take very long. Last week, a report revealed that not only is Disney seeking Chinese actors for their live-action remake of Mulan, but they’re also looking for an Asian filmmaker. That same report noted that Sony was also looking for an Asian filmmaker for their competing live-action Mulan project. While Disney’s search is ongoing, Sony has already landed on a director and — big fat not-surprise — it’s a white man.
The latest addition to cinema’s western revival is The Hollow Point, which, like this summer’s surprisingly solid Hell or High Water, takes those classic sensibilities and puts them in a contemporary — and violent — context. Judging by the first trailer for the upcoming thriller, things are going to get pretty bloody in this timely tale of crime on the U.S. and Mexico border.
If you loved Jonathan Glazer’s Under the Skin, then you’re going to want to pay attention to Evolution. After debuting at TIFF in 2015, Lucile Hadzihalilovic’s gorgeous and surreal sci-fi drama spent the past year on the festival circuit, playing everywhere from Paris to Portland. And now that Evolution is finally heading to theaters in November, IFC Midnight has released a new trailer that offers a tantalizing preview as enigmatic and unnerving as the film itself.
Anticipation for Arrival to, well, arrive is pretty high, with several cinephiles eager to experience the latest effort from Denis Villeneuve — the director of last year’s exquisitely intense Sicario. If you’re feeling particularly anxious to see more from the new sci-fi drama, Sony has released two new clips that expand upon a couple of scenes from the trailer, in which Amy Adams’ expert linguist first meets our unearthly visitors.
Of the many bonus features included in each new Marvel Blu-ray / DVD release, the gag reels are always the most special of the bunch, especially when the whole MCU gang gets together. You won’t be able to purchase Captain America: Civil War for another couple of weeks, but thanks to Marvel, you can watch the hilarious outtakes featuring Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr. and the rest of the Avengers crew right now.
2016 has been the year of pop culture surprise releases — some, like Lemonade and 10 Cloverfield Lane, have been pretty great, which makes us even more hopeful for Blair Witch. Originally marketed as The Woods, the sneaky sequel to the found footage horror classic is set to hit theaters next month, taking audiences back to where it all began…but judging by these new TV spots, heading back into the woods of Burkittsville seems like a pretty terrible idea (in a good, spooky way, of course).
Not even sorry about that headline, guys. In more amusing news, here’s the latest trailer for Storks, a new animated adventure from Warner Bros. starring Andy Samberg(’s voice) as a stork who teams up with a human to deliver a bundle of joy to a hopeful family. Sounds pretty cute, but in a year filled with animated movies about talking animals, Storks is gonna need to give us a little something extra.
This has been an underwhelming summer (to say the least), but there’s still hope that August will end this movie season on a positive note. One of our most anticipated releases of the month is Pete’s Dragon, which our own Erin Whitney calls a “worthy remake” and “one of the most stunning live-action animation hybrids Disney has made in years.” That’s the sort of praise that could really get you excited for Disney’s latest reimagining, but just in case you needed a little extra convincing, this new trailer is pretty persuasive.
Most people would tell you that Showgirls is a bizarre, tone-deaf curiosity in Paul Verhoeven’s filmography — that it doesn’t belong on the same shelf next to beloved Verhoeven cult classics like RoboCop and Starship Troopers. Those people would be incorrect. Despite its failure to capture audiences and critics alike, Showgirls is every bit as satirical and entertaining as the more respected films in Verhoeven’s catalog, and the people at Pathé Films seem to agree.
Between The Visit and the first season of Wayward Pines, 2015 restored our faith in M. Night Shyamalan as a filmmaker capable of delivering clever, surprising thrillers, which makes us all the more optimistic for Split. The director’s latest project stars James McAvoy as a man with many personalities (one of which is quite deadly), and although the first trailer suggests that Split borrows familiar elements from other notable films, we have to believe that Shyamalan still has a few tricks up his sleeve.
One of next year’s more intriguing blockbuster prospects is Kong: Skull Island, which takes viewers to the titular home of the iconic movie monster for his first movie in over 10 years. As many predicted, Warner Bros. debuted the official trailer for the film during today’s panel at Comic-Con, giving us our best look yet at the new action-adventure starring Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson and one ginormous ape.
From the moment we got our first look at Margot Robbie in Suicide Squad, it was obvious that her take on Harley Quinn would easily be the best thing about the film. A new extended promo for David Ayer’s super-villain team-up further makes that point clear, as The Joker’s (former?) partner-in-crime takes the spotlight and proves that she’s not at all what she seems.
